DALLAS (AP) — A Dallas 911 operator is fired and another is suspended over the handling of a 911 calls from and about a woman later found dead.

A police statement Wednesday says Police Chief David Brown fired Angelia Herod-Graham after investigators determined she didn’t log information from Deanna Cook’s family when they reported her missing Aug. 19.

The family then went to Cook’s home, forced their way in and found her body.

Brown suspended Tonyita Hopkins for 10 days and ordered her reassigned after investigators determined she didn’t log critical information from an Aug. 17 call from Cook, where she reported she was being attacked.

Both can appeal. A number listed for Herod-Graham was reported as disconnected. Hopkins didn’t return a message seeking comment.
